Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #2

A4 6-cyl

  • 37,991 miles


I was just parking the car and was about 5 mph and suddenly car got accelerated unintentionally to higher RPM and hit the curb and above cement wall. Even applying brakes hadn't slowed down the vehicle because it was just few feet away.

On two occasions, April 3, 2012 and April 9, 2012, while traveling with the cruise control set at 78 mph, without touching the control or accelerator, the control setting jumped to 90 mph and the vehicle began to rapidly accelerate. When the brake was applied, the cruise control disengaged.
